So, right now is not “peak” reflection season. That’s usually early spring and late fall. Here’s what the neighbor’s window reflection looks like on my garage door.
So, I washed the 4Runner last week and noticed this blemish on the front grill surround. I’ve had the truck for one month now. I noticed it when I washed it last week. The first time I washed it, it seems like I would’ve noticed it, but maybe not.
So, a hotel we’ll be staying at in the future for a hockey tournament sent us an email to verify check in in/out date information. They sent this email to us, and many other teams that are at the same hotel. The email they sent out contained FULL CREDIT CARD INFORMATION for every person from every team staying at the…
I have a few leftover parts from the Cougar that have stagnated on Craigslist for a while, but I know someone can eventually use them, so I’ll just keep renewing the post. I got a call this afternoon on some interior bits I have listed, which led to us chatting about cars. It seems I can’t even talk about old cars…
We’re with USAA, but the rate creep has been substantial the last 2-3 years. I hate that a legal requirement like car insurance basically has the same bait and switch practices as cable TV. I think it’s time to switch.
Now they’re both gone. It’s easy to look at pictures of the Cougar and forget the work that it needed, because darn, it was perty.
Simple question, what are your thoughts on modifying a vehicle that is financed (meaning loan, not leased)? Enjoy it while you got it, or funnel that mod money towards paying it off first?
A pleasant day today meant a quick wash of both vehicles. I need it to be warmer for me to go for the full detail, which both vehicles badly need.
Almost two weeks ago, I replaced my perfectly functional 2015 Tacoma DoubleCab TRD Sport 4x4 (Toyota should make that name a little longer) with a 2019 Toyota 4Runner SR5 Premium. Here are some quick thoughts after putting a couple of tanks of gas through it.
I paid $31k and change for it in April 2015. Sticker was a little over $34k. It currently has almost 33k miles.
One of the reasons why I traded in the Tacoma was an occasional need for a third row. It was not the main reason, but a viable reason nonetheless. I figured it would be an emergency use only, shove the kid(s) back there when family is visiting type of thing. There’s more room back there than I thought.
I also did my first “mod” today, getting rid of the damn dealer sticker.
In the past 5 years, my wife has had 1 vehicle, her Jeep. I’ve had seven. Most are familiar here.
I couldn’t stray from my now apparent Toyota bias. I traded in the Taco on a new 2019 Nautical Blue SR5 Premium 4Runner.
I didn’t think I’d replace it, but I am. The replacement is in my garage, but the paperwork will be finalized this evening. Here’s a hint....it’s 4wd.
Quite the monstrosity.
Second gen, meet third gen, third gen, meet second gen.
Perusing the CL for future project cars, I simply set my filter on 80s. This lovely little Turno Coupe popped up.
She drives her vehicle until it’s on fumes, then forgets to fill up. It’s weird watching your own vehicle drive away.
Ever since I drove one a month or so ago, I’ve been thinking about the JLUR. I went to another dealer today to drive one again, even though it isn’t a configuration I would buy.
